They Said NO: What happened when 12 nurses refused to do abortions

The change came in September of 2011, with the news that a peer was being promoted. Though employed in the same unit as Fe, Beryl and the rest, this particular nurse had long been assigned to a special team that carried out the abortions without any involvement or assistance from other nurses on the Same Day Surgery floor. The abortion team had always drawn its staff from nurses who had expressed no qualms about helping end a child’s life.

Promoted from that team to a supervisory position over all the nurses, the new assistant manager announced that – since she and others had to help with abortions – she saw no reason why every nurse shouldn’t help. Hospital officials agreed, and passed a new, mandatory policy to make it so. The assistant manager quickly set up a training program that would give each nurse on the unit hands-on experience in how to assist with and clean up after abortions.

“As long as you work here,” she told the 12 nurses who openly protested, “you’re going to have to do it. If you don’t, you’re going to be fired or transferred out.”

“We were all shocked,” Fe says. “All these years I’ve been a nurse, I was never told to help kill children.”

  1. I worked for an Anesthesiologist, while in college,with filing insurance and billing. His wife got pregnant and she had Cancer, and needed to have an Abortion, because the baby was not formed correctly. He worked at a Catholic Hospital, that would not allow the procedure. He was Jewish, and quite upset about the Hospital not allowing the procedure, where he worked!
    Well my opinion….GO to Hospital that Allows Abortion!
    Those poor nurses that were told to be accomplices of “Killing Babies”…..LEAVE that Murder Factory!
    In Health Care you are there to “Help”….NOT “KiLL!”
